WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO KEEP YOUR GUTTERS CLEAN?
Gutter systems are designed to control the flow of water from your roof away from your home. When your gutters are clogged and full of leaves, sticks, pine needles, dirt, etc., there is nowhere for the water to go except over your gutters. Instead of water running down the downspouts and away from your home, the water runs down the side of your house.
Using ladders and walking on roofs can be dangerous if you do not have the right equipment. Let Pro Clean Window Cleaning Service handle this chore for you. With 34 years of experience, we can guarantee clean and free flowing gutters.
SOME OF THE PROBLEMS CAUSED BY CLOGGED GUTTERS ARE:
FLOODED BASEMENTS – Clogged gutters are the number one cause of water damage in basements. When rain water comes off your roof and has nowhere to go, it will find the path of least resistance. Often times this is inside your soffits, down your siding to the lowest point in the home, your basement.
CRACKED FOUNDATIONS – In cold climates like Wisconsin, it is not unusual to have frost levels 6-8 feet deep. When excess water is allowed to settle around your homes foundation frost heave can occur, causing severe cracks to foundation walls.
INSECT BREEDING GROUND – Standing water and debris filled gutters are a paradise for several species of insects, mosquitoes, wasps, and even termites that can live inside your gutters and find their way into your home.
ROTTEN WOOD – When gutters become clogged, the excess water and moisture does not allow the wood fascia to dry out completely. This can cause rotting.
MOLD AND MILDEW – Standing water and moisture is a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Unsightly growth may start on the gutters, spreading to the fascia, soffiting, and siding.
